a show for you tonight. my guest tonight, mitch daniels. he is the current governor of indiana and the guy that every other republican says, "man, i wish that guy was running for president." [laughter] but at least maybe vice president. but let's start in washington. they enjoy that. monday morning president obama took to the white house rose garden, where appearing in front of the very doorknobs that might be hitting him in the ass next november, he talked death and taxes. >> today i'm laying out a set of specific proposals to finish what we started this summer. >> jon: you mean fort awesome?
